    Republicans might have tried to play hardball a little more had they won. And Dems are in such a minority in the Senate that I don't think the House Dems will bat an eye if they decide to pair several Dem Senators. And the even/odd configuration of seats make it difficult to mess with too many Dem Senators. Also, there were several new GOP Senators elected in 2012 were in seats that were going to have severe changes that now will want a safe seat for themselves. Some of what they are talking about might be putting some GOP House members that lose their seats a chance to run for the Senate.

    "So there's a time for silence, and there's a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you'll know it. I don't think you should wait. I think you should speak now." -Taylor Swift

    •  Like drawing Caesare into a Senate district (0+ / 0-)

      while they draw Mike Wilson into a SD that drops Butler and a trail of outer Warren County (making Wilson's district rewinnable).
